This week we're going to work on using multiple fonts, and enhancing fonts. What I want you to do is use at least 2 different fonts, preferably 3. One needs to be a basic (i.e. century gothic, arial, times new roman) and another needs to be a fun or script font. The fonts need to compliment each other, and not just be used as fun/script for name, and plain for everything else. I want to see you mix them up some. Also you'll be working on using stroke, adding shadow, and using bevel with your font. I also want to see at least 1 quote/phrase somewhere in your siggy that uses at least two fonts in at least 2 different colors.
Examples:

fonts used: boogie nights (Z), ck carolyn (achary), century gothic (everything else)
however this one wouldn't work for the challenge because I did not use more than 1 font for the saying.

fonts used: century gothic (most of the wording), everyday ghost (brothers)
this one wouldn't work because I used two fonts in the quote, but I didn't use two colors

fonts used: century gothic (most of wording), action jackson (mom's name, and "rock" in saying)
this one would work because I did use two fonts in the saying and two colors

Do y'all need more examples?
